Trail Section: Tinicum Park – Virginia Forrest Recreation Area

Status: Obstruction within trail section, see description

Distance: 9.7

Due to blocked roadways and other damage resulting from Hurricane Isaias on 8/4/20, Delaware Canal State Park access points and day use facilities may be inaccessible to the public. Many trees have been reported blocking the towpath and the adjacent Route 32 and SR611. Please consider alternate recreation plans as park staff and local emergency crews are actively clearing obstructions.   

TINICUM AQUEDUCT AREA (MILE 37):  The towpath at the Tinicum Aqueduct is currently closed 24/7 for visitor safety.  This closure is due to the ongoing repair project at the aqueduct, and is expected to last through the summer, or until the repair project has completed.  This section of the trail will NOT be open weekends.

 

This section is part of over 50 miles of the D&L Trail designated as National Recreation Trail within Delaware Canal State Park from Easton to Bristol near Philadelphia. For more information specific to the D&L Trail along the Delaware Canal please refer to the Delaware Canal State Park.
